LESMILLS Become a CXWORX Instructor @ Downtown YMCA
Apr 7 – Apr 8 all-day

LESMILLS – Become a CXWORX instructor

As a CXWORX Instructor, you inspire and motivate members to look and feel their best. And we’ll make sure you have the tools to do it!

CXWORX training scheduled for April 7th and 8th at the DowntownYMCA.

Exercising muscles around the core, CXWORX provides the vital ingredient for a stronger body. A stronger core makes you better at all things you do, from everyday life to your favorite sports – it’s the glue that holds everything together.

All the moves in CXWORX have options, so it’s challenging but achievable for your own level of fitness. During the 30-minute workout you use resistance tubes and weight plates, as well as body weight exercises like crunches, and hovers to strengthen and tone your abdominals, hips, butt and lower back.

For more information contact Monica Olesnanik at the DTYMCA.
